Seattle Urban Mobility Project – Project Feasibility Assessment

Client: City of Seattle (Department of Transportation)

Role: Roadway Engineer | CH2M

Dates: March 2008 – May 2008

Stephanie was a roadway design engineer for the feasibility design for multiple urban mobility preliminary designs for the City of Seattle. Stephanie developed multiple design alternatives, reports and exhibits for SDOT.  This project was aimed at the development and evaluation of alternative strategies to address the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct along the Seattle Waterfront and provided technical support regarding surface street, pedestrian, bicycle and bus transit infrastructure solutions.  Based on the eight design concepts for the removal of AWV, the project focused on the design and cost estimates for the 60+ local road improvements.  Examples of surface street improvements included were Lander Street Grade Separation, East Marginal Way Grade Separation and a Marion Street Pedestrian bridge over I-5.  Stephanie also worked on developing the methodology for generating the concept level cost estimates, illustrating the concepts, creating engineering drawings, and other data to outline implementation issues, design challenges, and risks with each alternative.
